MTV has gotten their hands on the first images from the upcoming hockey comedy "Goon" and it definitely hints at a very fun film.

Written by Judd Apatow staples Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg (the latter co-wrote "Superbad" and "Pineapple Express") the film stars Baruchel, Seann William Scott, Alison Pill, Marc-Andre Grondin, Liev Schrieber and Eugene Levy in a comedy about a bouncer (Scott) who joins a rag tag hockey team and inspires them to greatness. Sounds perfectly Canadian, eh? Shooting is underway in Winnipeg, under the eye of "Fubar" and "It's All Gone Pete Tong" director Michael Dowse.

Talking about the project earlier this year, Baruchel said,"We like to think of ["Goon"] as a funnier 'Raging Bull.' It's real mean, and it's truthful, and it's everything hockey is without any of the bullshit sports movie clichés, and it is dead funny. Lot of swears, that's a hard R. It's a very crass movie, there are something like 20 fights in it, but it's the badass movie that hockey fans have been waiting to see their whole lives. It will be by far the best hockey movie since 'Slapshot.' Hockey fans have needed one for a long time, it's a sport that movies never do well. Ours will be a fucking movement." The early stills certainly look like it's heading in the right direction-- we can't wait to see how it turns out.
